Clay Shaw1948 Play Memorial

I recently received some information on Clay Shaw's attempt to have his 1948 full-length play, Memorial, made into a film. The studio synopsis and its evaluation of the play were included. This is the play that many gossiped had to do with a returning soldier planning to assassinate a President!

True or no? Stay tuned.

Clay Shaw/World War II Military Service

I just received a nice long letter from a WWII veteran who served with Clay Shaw from May to November 1945. He has helped tremendously in filling in some of the gaps regarding Shaw's service. More to come!

I sent a copy of Clay Shaw's 1948 play, Memorial, out to a scholar who has analyzed his other plays. I also have now received the files from Warner Brothers Studios concerning an attempt to turn the play into a film in 1949.
